Man Who Sold Fentanyl Pills Gets 6 Months Turns Off Skype Camera at End of Sentence

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 12 – Ricardo Reynoso pled guilty to selling 320 grams of fentanyl to CC-1, previous arrested with 1.12 kilos of heroin and since "deactivated as a confidential source."   

   On December 11, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held Reynoso's sentence, by Skype Video. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Failla asked AUSA Ryan Finkel if his barebones sentencing submission meant that his Office didn't stand behind the guideline sentence being asked for: 37 to 46 months.

Finkel said the submission spoke for itself. 

  While Reynoso's retained counsel asked for time served, saying his client and his mother are thinking of starting a trucking company, Judge Failla after briefly turning off her camera and microphone returned with a sentence of six months.  

 The Reynoso family was upset. Judge Failla asked if they'd like to briefly turn off their camera.

They did, then returned. Defense counsel asked for home incarceration, but Judge Failla said she'd already considered that. The turn-in date, however, is in April, due to COVID.

The case is US v. Reynoso, 19-cr-735 (Failla)
